Miss Mary Cynster is the last marriageable Cynster at least for right now so there were not going to be a lacking of suitors. Mary has her own mind set on her suitor as long as the necklace comes to life. She will be frustrated as it will but to the wrong man. Soon after Mary will find herself linked to this man and accidents start to happen to them.
Marquess of Raventhorne, Ryder Cavanaugh is the eldest brother of his half siblings which left him in charge. He will know that it is time to start looking for a wife and knew the perfect one was Mary. He will just have to convince her that he is the right man to wed which will get a little tricky as accidents keep happening to them.
The Taming of Ryder Cavanaugh is the fifth and last book to the series Cynster Sisters from Stephanie Laurens. Like the previous book I liked the story. Stephanie Laurens can write well and her characters are engaging.
Mary is the last marriageable Cynster as of right now and I found it funny as that meant she was a prize to be had by suitors thanks to her family. Mary is an intelligent girl and knows her own mind with the exception of not seeing things how they are like pursuing a man who has no interest in marriage. It was kind of funny how she pursued one suitor who she thought would be perfect for her husband but her necklace did not react. It only reacted to one man who Mary had no desire to be shackled too. Ryder is the man that Mary is trying to avoid, but he is not really a bad guy. He is just a rogue who usually gets the girl and a caring one at that as he always has time for his half siblings. I liked their family unit with the siblings as it was genuine. I liked that Ryder wanted Mary not for a mistress but for a wife. He will attempt to seduce her to be his wife but there will be some things getting in his way, like the mysterious accidents that kept happening.
The act of the accidents I knew exactly who is was as it was pretty obvious right from the beginning. I wasn’t disappointed that I knew the culprit as you still did not know what kind of accidents were coming next. The villain has their own ending which will leave Mary and Ryder save from any harm.
